    Today I got a new email address. I wanted this to be my primary email address so needed my apple ID to be assigned to this.

    On my MBP, I went into iTunes > Library > Account and changed the email address to my new email address.

    My MBP is now saying that it can't access iCloud because there is a problem with the email address, but I don't know how to change this.

    I plugged in my iPhone and synced it through iTunes, but it hasn't changed the email address assigned to the appleID on my iPhone. My iPhone keeps popping up with a message asking me to re-enter the password for my appleID (regardless of what app I am using) but it's still showing my old email address.

    Any help, much appreciated!

    Go to and update your email address there instead.
